The Autumnal Equinox for Writers

writerofscreen:

Today is the Autumnal Equinox. The days are for a moment equal now. It’s harvest time and there are many celebrations that span almost every culture. If you like the Green Man this was Mea’n Fo’mhair for the Druids and trees were honored with libations. But, in general, most traditions focus…

Not just for writers.

Sometimes I don’t get any writing done unless I’ve been drinking.

I think I have a drinking problem.

Or a not writing while sober problem.

Frankly, if I wrote more often sober I wouldn’t think anything of my drinking.

'I Will Personally Pay For Every Member Of The Westboro Baptist Church To Fly To Iraq Right Now'

(To Westboro Baptist Church)

"If you really believe in standing up to those threatening the Christian way of life," Hills said on his UK television program "The Last Leg," "how about putting your money where your mouth is, taking a direct flight to Iraq and picketing the people threatening to behead Christians if they don’t convert?"

Hills then took his suggestion a step further by making a generous offer. “I will personally pay for every member of the Westboro Baptist Church to fly to Iraq right now. I’ll even fly you first class and pay the carbon offset.”

GUYS

THEY ACCEPTED

Westboro has been to Iraq before though, when Saddam was in power.

I remember watching the behind the scenes on this show. The creator of the show said that they got so much fan mail saying this show was the most realistic hospital show.

My parents both worked in the medical profession my whole life, and when I was watching them come home, I could see echoes of what this show did. All other medical shows were so much about the drama. This one nailed it. It nailed the good, the bad, and everything in between.

Also, I read that Scrubs was more medically accurate than House, Grey’s Anatomy, and every other medical show on TV

“Although I know I am setting myself up for abuse, this is NOT an article about poor white men feeling like they’re under attack. … I care about the same agenda supported by many of those people who throw ‘check your privilege’ around like it’s some magical defense against the dark arts…”
3 Ways ‘Checking Your Privilege’ Never Fixed Anything

#3. “Check Your Privilege” Makes Assumptions
In a very odd way, “check your privilege” is kind of racist, because it assumes someone’s background dictates their opinions. Of course, we are all products of environments, but do you really think you can sum up someone’s entire argument, if not existence, by referring to their background? You may not call it their race, gender, orientation, or social stratus. You call it their “privilege,” but, ultimately, that’s just code for saying, “Hey, your opinions are wrong because you’re ___.”
Aside from the dangers of assuming someone is privileged based on appearance, you’re also assuming that background leads to only one conclusion. You’re judging someone based on where they’re from. Assuming why they believe what they believe. It’s behavior beneath the dignity of someone who allegedly cares about prejudice and discrimination.

50 Dead Giveaways That You’re an Amateur Writer | LA Screenwriter

annerocious:

thisoldbitch:

I’m going to share this for my screenwriter friends who want to know. However, we film our own scripts, and if you do that, many of these don’t apply to you. What we write is as much a shooting script as a story script. That’s part of the advantage of producing our own material — we get to control every aspect of the process.

My blog in list form. Read and enjoy.

Is it really that big a deal to write with celtx or word?
